Who Would I Sue After A Truck Accident?
Assuming that the truck driver caused the accident, your lawsuit would likely involve three defendants: the truck driver, the trucking company and the insurer that wrote the commercial policy.
The trucking company is liable for any harm caused by the driver because the company was responsible for hiring, training and monitoring that driver. The accident may have also been caused by problems with the vehicle, which would usually also be the responsibility of the trucking company. The insurance company is automatically a defendant as a result of offering the policy.
What Are The Common Causes Of Truck Accidents?
There are many, and they usually come down to truck driver or trucking company negligence. They include:
- Truck driver fatigue or drowsy driving
- Violating safety regulations like hours-of-service rules
- Speeding, distracted driving and other bad decisions behind the wheel
- Inadequate vehicle maintenance and failure to make repairs (such as failing to fix worn-out brakes)
- Carrying cargo loads that are too heavy, unbalanced or improperly secured
- Crashes caused by inexperienced and poorly trained truck drivers
This is only a partial list. There are many additional causes that we will explore when we investigate your case.
